BEER LOVERS

Right on Gumpen­dor­fer­strasse, this haven of suds stocks 1,500 spe­cialty craft beers from over 100 brew­eries, an in­cred­i­ble se­lec­tion of pales, ales, bar­rel-aged lagers and any­thing else your heart de­sires, in­clud­ing home­brew kits for the DIY crowd. Even bet­ter, a re­frig­er­ated walk-in area of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to grab a cold one right then and there. The store is cur­rently ex­pand­ing: the Beerlovers crew just re­leased their first self-pro­duced brew called Mut­ter­milch (Mother’s Milk); If that still doesn’t con­vince you, the on­line shop might be just the thing. You can stock up on the lat­est Bel­gian spe­cial­ties from the com­fort of your home. Time to step up your beer game.
